Colorado Football: Mike MacIntyre Gives Brutally Honest Assessment Of Team

||

The Colorado football program had the type of season nobody saw coming in 2017.

The Buffaloes managed to win 10 games for the first time in 15 years, and made their first bowl appearance in nine years. All season, it seemed as if things kept breaking in favor of head coach Mike MacIntyre’s team.

They don’t appear to have won over anybody in the media, though. Nobody is giving Colorado much of a chance to post a repeat performance. That’s apparently led to some sore feelings on behalf of the Colorado players, not that coach MacIntyre is going to blindly back them up.

While speaking at PAC-12 Media Days, the head ball coach offered a surprisingly candid take on the outlook of his football team this season.

With a number of players from last year’s team no longer in school for one reason or another, they’re due to regress this season. It’ll be interesting to see how the players respond. While his comments will certainly be appreciated by those who have grown tired of the psycho-babel coach speak that results in a lot of nothing, the players might not appreciate them much.

A seven win season would have to be considered a success for Colorado this year. Last year might have been a fluke, but they’ll look to continue building toward regularly competing.
